This great new full flat grind knife is constructed as a multipurpose knife for hunting, bushcraft and general use in the great outdoors. The blade is 10cm long and made using 3.8mm thick Swedish 14C28N stainless knife steel and heat treated to achieve a hardness of 57-59 HRC.
The handles of these striking looking knives are made from wood that has been stabiised with acrylics increasing the density of the material and making it impregnable and totally resistant to cracks and movement regardless of climate. Washable waterproof and very tough.
The knife comes with a sturdy welted sheath made from cognac brown 3mm vegetable tanned full-grain leather. The sheath features an extra wide belt loop, a fluid draining hole and a lanyard hole.
ABOUT THE STEEL:
Sandvik 14C28N is the latest development in Sandvik's range of knife steels. Optimized chemistry provides a top grade knife steel with a unique combination of excellent edge performance (stability and ability to take an edge), high hardness and good corrosion resistance. This new grade allows for better hardness and wear resistance to previous grades without affecting the microstructure. Blade re-sharpening is therefore easy. At the same time, edge stability in terms of microchipping and edge folding or rolling is also good.
